The formal announcement of the coming together of the inimitable Michael Feinstein and New York’s popular nightclub 54 Below, was made on Thursday September 17th at the club. Michael Feinstein, Ambassador of the Great American Songbook, seeking a New York home after the closing of Feinstein’s at the Regency, couldn’t have landed in a better spot than at the elegant, classically designed state-of-the art nightclub that provides some of the best talent and cuisine, together with an impeccable sound system.
Feinstein is a multi-platinum selling entertainer and the proud recipient of five Grammy Award nominations, added to his PBS-TV special Emmy nomination. He brings his talent to 54 Below for six weeks a year beginning December 20th thru 30th while still maintaining his presence in his partnership at San Francisco’s Nikko Hotel – Feinstein’s at the Nikko. Along with Michael, comes his long time friend and associate John Iachetti (formerly General Manager at Feinstein’s at the Regency) assuming the role as General Manager of restaurant operations at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
Exciting times ahead according to the 54 Below partners and Feinstein who had lots to say, including a peek into what Mr. Feinstein might be singing during his residency at the newly named nightclub. (see video) www.Feinstein’s/54Below.com
